#pyrénées #france taking advantage of the tourist season of the summer, a farmer comes to sell his cheeses in the vicinity of luz saint sauveur. protected by the national park of the pyrénées, the region of #lavedan is famous for its breathtaking landscapes. for those inhabitants who are able to resist the urban exodus towards the plains, tourism remains a crucial source of income. photograph taken during a reportage in france on the regions of the languedoc roussillon and midi pyrénées, while assembling material for a book for national geographic. text written by rachel deghati. #portrait #man #village #labor #typical #beret #familytrip #french #midipyrenees #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

International mother language day ​#china, #xinjiang (#easternturkestan). north of the #taklamakan #desert i was on assignment for national geographic on xinjiang. the famous taklamakan desert stretched away in front of me. i was going to take on a 370-mile-long road crossing through the vast expanse with no landmark, deprived of oasis, rocks and small shrubs, a mere succession of sand dunes. by the dried-out bed of the tarim river, a uyghur village was the last possible stop before the desert. as i often did while traveling, i asked where the school was. ten students of all ages were listening to the teacher. the broken benches, the dirty walls, the rare and sorry-loo- king school books showed that no subsidies had been granted for a long time by the chinese authorities. first, i was agreeably surprised to notice that the books were written in uyghur. then i quickly understood that i had been deceived. elementary school students may have the right to study texts written in their native language, but only until junior high school where only mandarin is taught. however, the chinese assimilation policy for minorities is much more efficient and deceitful. moreover, elementary school students do have the right to read and write in their native language, but their books are always made under the control of the chinese authorities, which impose their own version of history. text written by rachel deghati. #education #school #child #student #classroom #internationalmotherlanguageday #easternturkistan #future #learning #chinese #uygur #picoftheday #igers #photooftheda #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

#france, village of saint martin, #comminges at the heart of the #pyrénées, i had a fortuitous encounter with a village elder who was out in front of his house for a bit of air. i was intrigued by all the elements in his appearance that indicated a long life of labor: the blue pants of a factory worker or peasant, his strong knotted hands, marked by work and time. and his dignity. this photograph was taken during a reportage in france on the regions of the languedoc roussillon and midi pyrénées, while assembling material for a book for national geographic. text written by rachel deghati. published in "destins croisés" (hors collection publishing in 2002). #portrait #oldman #village #labor #typical #hardwork #hardlife #beret #familytrip #french #midipyrenees #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

-all american- it doesn't get much more patriotic than this. i was covering a parade in miami's little havana district for my newspaper in the early 1980's when i spotted this very enthusiastic family driving by. boy it sure looks retro now and makes me wonder where all the years have gone. it was taken with a nikon fe loaded with kodak tri-x 400 film. in addition to digital, i still use this same film today with my leicas. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #photographyislife #photojournalist #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #jeffwidener #nostalgic #cubans #reaganbush #florida #patriotic #america #immigrants #allamerican

Should colonialism be considered a "crime against humanity"? #algeria, #oran area on the set of zabana!, a movie by algerian director said ould-khelifa, produced by yacine laloui. a french policeman threatens a sympathiser with the algerian rebellion, a member of the national liberation front and war veteran on the french side during the second world war. ahmed zabana, best known as zabana, was an algerian freedom fighter who participated in the assassination of a forest ranger named francois braun during the night of october 31st to november 1st, 1954. following this event and the outbreak of the algerian war of liberation in the region of oran on november 1st, 1954, he was sentenced to death and guillotined. the execution took place on june 19th, 1956, in the barberousse prison of algiers. he is now regarded as a national hero; his hometown and a few places in oran are named after him. #colonialism #algerian #film #movie #zabana #freedom #algerianwar #execution #crime #prison #nationalhero #set #filmmaker #policeman #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

-benazir bhutto- during an election year in pakistan i had a chance to get close up and personal to prime minister benazir bhutto at her home where much of the media was sleeping on her front porch while waiting for voting results. getting such extraordinary access to the first woman to head a majority muslim nation was a rare opportunity. i found bhutto serious but friendly and we shared a few pleasantries while i captured this moment with a nikon f3 camera and fuji 800 color negative film. the picture appeared in time magazine. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #photographyislife #photojournalist #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #jeffwidener #pakistan #karachi #asia #benazirbhutto #portrait #primeminister #face #muslim

-cop kiss- this is from my archive from honolulu, hawaii. every newspaper photographer gets their fair share of boring news assignments but the key is making the story jump out for the readers. though documenting a police award ceremony seemed pretty dull, i waited around until after the event as family members started to leave the police station. then suddenly this hpd police officer leaned over and kissed his young son.the picture ended up being used on the front page. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #father #photographyislife #photojournalist #children #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #honolulu #hawaii #jeffwidener #child #policeman #kiss #love

Rip #pakistan the devastating explosion of today in sehwan sharif reminds me an assignment for national geographic magazine. while on assignment, you have often to share the daily routine of the people you are working on, in every conditions that they live. in sehwan sharif, in pakistan, a group of dervishes (malangs) resting by sehwan fort. they gather together to celebrate the annual urs of lal shahbaz qalandar, a 13th century sufi master venerated alike by hindus and muslims. born as seyed shah hussain (usman) marandi, he later on titled as lal (red) shahbaz ( falcon) qalandar (as he belonged to qalandria order of sufism). text written by rachel deghati. #devotion #celebration #dervish #resting #urs #qalandar #sufi #sufism #religion #spirituality #devote #fervor #mystical #picoftheday #pakistanese #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس @thephotosociety
